The curves are sewn!

Now that I have it this far I think I should've switched the greens around....I think the sashing green shows up too much. Does that ever happen to you? Maybe I have just looked at it too much the past few days.
You can see the curves though.
Several people asked how you do this. I tried to take pix, they are not the best, but hopefully they will help. Here is the triangle with the folded edge pushed up slightly...notice the opposite triangle hasn't been sewn yet.

Press the folded edge back to make the curve. That's all it takes!
Now to decide what to do about another border...does it need one? I like the leafy border, but does it meed more??? Maybe it doesn't need a border. It is about 33" x 33" right now.
What do you think?

I like the grid that the sashing makes in the center. Do you have any more of that green to use as a first border with the leaf print?

Ilove the quilt as it is. I would just bind it in a darker color. Green or pink. I bet the leaf border has a nice dark green in it.

this quilt has come out fabulous! i don't think it needs another border, and the previous idea of binding in a darker green does sound lovely. kudos to you for all that really great work!
